State flag at half-staff in honor of Judge Dimitri
PROVIDENCE -- Governor Carcieri has ordered the state flag to be lowered to half-staff today to honor the memory of Superior Court Judge William A. Dimitri Jr., who died Saturday at the age of 76 after a lengthy illness.
The flag will remain at half-staff until memorial services are complete.
Dimitri was formerly a high-profile criminal defense lawyer and a state and federal prosecutor.
His wake will be held tomorrow from 4 to 8 p.m. at the A.A. Mariani & Son Funeral Home, 200 Hawkins St. in Providence. His funeral will be Wednesday at 8:30 a.m. from the funeral home, followed by a Mass of Christian burial at 10 a.m. in the Church of the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary, 1081 Mineral Spring Ave. in North Providence.
“Judge Dimitri served the Superior Court with honor and dedication and was an active and energetic presence in the state’s legal and political circles for more than three decades,” the governor said in a written statement. “My wife, Sue, and I extend our condolences to the entire Dimitri family.”
